HW/SW Design & Integration for Arm Powered® Products

ARM and Synopsys

Early Development

Virtual prototypes enable software engineers to start development months before the hardware design is complete, enabling full system bring-up to occur within days of silicon availability.

The Virtualizer™ Development Kit (VDK) Family for ARM Processors offers a wide range of models (including the latest Armv8 processors) and software tools to span this entire application domain.

Synopsys' hybrid prototyping solution blends the strengths of both virtual and HAPS® FPGA-based prototyping to enable software development and system integration much sooner in the project lifecycle. Hybrid prototyping can easily integrate high-performance Arm® Cortex™ processor models, transactors for Arm AMBA® interconnect and Synopsys DesignWare® IP with the rest of your design into a single hybrid prototype.
